COCPA connects CPAs personally and meaningfully to all aspects of the accounting profession.
Our work is important because it materially affects the public interest, and our work is a joy because it happens in relationship with members, staff, educators, partners, regulators, and other stakeholders. We demonstrate our core values in what we do, with whom we do it, and how we do it.
We’re here to make a difference for members, often in unexpected ways. Whether through education, resources, connections, or solutions to problems and answers to questions, we support COCPA members in being successful.
We treat all people with respect, seek to understand, listen effectively, routinely give the benefit of the doubt, and embrace being compassionate and caring. We are resilient team players who understand and support each other in both our personal and professional lives.
We are personally and collectively accountable for producing our best work to the best of our ability. We pay attention to the details. We hold ourselves and each other responsible for delivering timely, accurate, and informative work products and resources.

Together, we tackle the challenges before us and adapt our processes, programming, services, and relationships to sustain and grow our organization for the future.
We embrace opportunities and challenges with persistence, humor, grace, and a sprinkling of joy. We approach requests with an open mind and willingness to do what it takes to get the job done.
We work hard, individually and together. We connect with and contribute to our team and the profession we serve. We are self-motivated and proactive. We focus on being solutions-oriented.
